Wellington region maintenance programme

Information about roadworks in the Wellington and Kāpiti regions

Major roadworks on the region's state highways for the week Sunday 15 July – Saturday 21 July 2018 are listed below to help you plan your journey.

Well-maintained roads are an important part of keeping people safe. While we aim to do this work with as little disruption as possible, we know that roadworks can be inconvenient. Thank you for your patience while we do this important work.

Please drive carefully through work sites and stick to the temporary speed limits. Plan ahead as roadworks on the state highway network may affect your journey times.

NOTE: Weather or other factors may cause roadworks to be postponed to the next suitable day or night. 

Mackays Crossing upgrade

Mackays Crossing on State Highway 1 in Kāpiti is being upgraded. Work started on 10 June, and will continue for up to eight weeks. Before the next stage of the Transmission Gully project, we are undertaking some major road rehabilitation on the crossing including resurfacing and upgrading the barriers and drainage.

The upgrade will avoid the need for significant roadworks once the gully route is open. If it is not done now, the likelihood of ongoing repairs to the deteriorating surface is high.

Regular updates will be published here. For more information, please use this link [PDF, 101 KB].

Week starting 15 July 2018:

  • This week the contraflow will be moving to the other side of the road, to enable us to continue with our upgrade of Mackays Crossing. This closure will remain in place 24/7 for the next few weeks.
  • Recently the southbound lane has been redirected onto the northbound side of the road, to allow the southbound lanes to be worked on. This week the layout will swap around; the northbound lane will be redirected into one of the southbound lanes past the worksite to allow the remaining lanes to be upgraded.
  • This change means the contraflow will look and feel different to what road users have been experiencing over the last few weeks.
  • Contractors will be still be working both days and nights, but not during the morning and afternoon peak times; this is to reduce the visual distraction when large volumes of traffic are on the road.
  • The Mackays northbound off- and on-ramps will allow cyclists to bypass the worksite.
  • An 80kph speed limit will still apply at all times, day and night, to ensure both road users and workers on site are safe at all times.
  • Expect the temporary speed to change at times during some types of work, and drive with care.
